Thanks, Ash. And yes, Mike, I already knew that aspect of things. I just don't think the accounts I've made can be used to track me down beyond just knowing what I'm interested in. If you have found anything more than that, feel free to PM me on Discord (and give me context in the PM first and not just like "I know where you live" :P)
I don't really mind people knowing what browser games I've played or what shows I watch. I'd only really be concerned about anything that'd enable people to cross the barrier from online to offline, or anything more personal than that kind of stuff.

Hi room
 
hey there @Wolff and @AGirlHasNoName, welcome to the Not A Bar :)
 
Hi, @Shalvenay. Actually I was just snooping around in the chat rooms. Haven't played an RPG for 20 years :-)
 
Same. It's a very welcoming community
 
10:54 PM
:) indeed it is
 
@AGirlHasNoName, I remember it was when I played back in elementary school. It was a big mix of very different people. In my class it was mainly about soccer and not being too interested in "strange things". I also found that the stamp collectors club had the same vibe :-)
 
I played in elementary school to. But then in high school I got made fun of for it and stopped. (I wish I hadn't and want to go back one day. I think that is part of the reason I come lurk around these parts sometimes.)
 
if either of you wish to get back into it, there are folks on this Stack who run games from time to time
 
One of these days, for sure.
 
I'm 38 and some of my friends still play, but they mostly seem to play games with lots of rules and equipment. Magic also. I used to like more or less "rules free" games where we basically just sat around a table and made up a story together. Had some very imaginative gamemasters back then who where a little older than me.
@Shalvenay Run games online? How does that work?
 
11:12 PM
@Wolff yes, online :) all you really need for many RPG systems is a chatroom with a dicebot in it

Oh, did this come just from posting "d6"?

Could be fun to try online rpg some day. But I remember our gamemasters being very creative at mixing the real world with the game. Arriving in full costume and makeup. Having someone turn off electricity at a certain point in the game. Best gaming experience I've had was when we didn't know that another group were playing in the same world as we did. The groups where brought together mid-game and we had no idea what their mission was.
 
@Wolff yeah, there's definitely something to be said for in-person play, but online's good too :>
 
@Shalvenay If I ever did want to participate, how can I know when and where?
 
@Wolff keep your eyes peeled around these parts :) most of the time, we'll star a post in the main chat room (RPG General Chat) that announces such things
 
@Wolff I recommend The Gauntlet too, they're a community that plays a lot of different online games and works hard to be non-toxic.
